What size swimming pool heat pump should I get?

To reap the most benefits, it’s important that you select an appropriate size for your pool.

Things that need to be taken into consideration are:

  1. – Your pools size and volume
  2. – When will you be using the pool – extending the season or all year round?
  3. – Are you using a pool cover
  4. – How often do you use your pool
  5. – Where you are located
  6. – The desired temperature of the pool

For a rough estimate, you first need to determine the volume of your pool (multiply the length by the width and the average depth). Once you have this figure, divide by 2500 to determine the kW required of your pool heat pump.

For example, a 4 x 6 m pool with an average depth of 1.5 would have a volume of 36,000 litres. Now divide that by 2500, and you will get the number 10.4. So your pool heat pump would need to have a minimum of 10.4kW required for your pool heat pump.

(Note, this number is taking into account the use of a pool cover)
